REGISTRATION CLOSED - We are sorry, but the maximum number of
participatants for the 2017 workshop has been reached. However,
the training materials we use during the workshop are designed for you to study at your own pace and are available at
the following link for 2017:
A 4 day HYSPLIT workshop will be given June 13 - 16, 2017,
at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, Maryland.
The workshop will be focused on the use of the model on the PC/Mac and its Graphical User Interface (GUI).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The first day of the workshop
will be geared for those who have never installed or used the PC version
of HYSPLIT. Participants will install the current version of PC
HYSPLIT and a set of meteorological data to be used for examples. An
overview of the model GUI, meteorological display programs, and an extensive
hands-on training on how to solve atmospheric dispersion problems
problems will be presented. In the subsequent days, several real world examples
of increasing complexity will be explored.
The workshop will composed of theory, examples, and hands-on approaches, and the class will be made up of
both experienced and new users. A background in meteorology will be helpful for understanding the theory, but is not required.
Space is limited to the first 24 people and pre-registration is required. There is no fee
for the workshop, however participants are responsible for their own travel expenses and arrangements.
The maximum number of available spots for remote access has been reached, so no other requests can be honored.
Computer and HYSPLIT installation
All participants should bring a laptop PC (or a Mac, however the workshop will be focused on the PC), preferably
with a DVD drive and a mouse. We strongly recommend installing HYSPLIT
prior to attending the workshop as you will need Admininstrator privileges on your laptop to install
portions of the software. Failure to have these privledges will preclude you from running
the model examples on your laptop during the workshop. There are no requirements on the type of laptop, however
we will be doing some intensive computations so a rather fast processor is recommended to keep up with the rest of
the class. Instructions for downloading and installing the
version of the model for the workshop will be given to the participants prior to attending the workshop.
For those that cannot attend the workshop in person or will be viewing the GoToMeeting, all the materials that
will be used in the training are available online and are designed to be self-pacing with all the graphics
and examples needed. The 2017 training materials are available at:
